Smooth ER Function And Rough ER Function

The smooth ER (endoplasmic reticulum) function involves manufacturing and packaging, including the synthesis of lipids and hormones which are used for the production of new cellular membranes. The rough ER (endoplasmic reticulum) function involves the assembly of proteins and the transportation of those assembled ready proteins to where they will be used by the body. You may remember from high school biology that within an animal cell is a structure referred to as the endoplasmic reticulum. You may also remember...

Princeton University’s Top Scientific Research Of 2017: A Year In Review

Princeton University was responsible for some substantial research throughout the year of 2017. Princeton’s research in 2017 included establishing that anonymized web browsing isn’t as anonymous as people think, that air pollution in China reduces the efficiency of solar energy, and that bioinformatics can find new ways of treating pancreatic cancer. Princeton’s work throughout 2017 stands out, and while the university will no doubt go on to do great work in 2018, it is worth reflecting on all the knowledge...

We’re Dangerously Close To Pet Translating Devices: Convert Your Dogs Bark Into English

The ability to understand animals has been a long recurring concept in science fiction, but it seems we may be on the verge of creating devices that would enable us to understand animals, at the very least our pets. This is what was recently predicted by “The Next Big Thing”, an Amazon-sponsored book that predicts trends and inventions in the near future. According to Con Slobodchikoff, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Arizona University, a pet...

The Chemical Equation For Photosynthesis

The chemical equation for photosynthesis involves the input (reactants) of carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight to produce the outputs (products) of glucose and oxygen. This chemical process is a fundamental equation for understanding how photosynthesis compliments respiration. Do you know what the most critical thing for life on earth is? It's sunlight. Sunlight is responsible for providing life on earth with everything it needs: water, oxygen, and food. Yet we clearly can't sustain ourselves with just sunlight, so how does...

Large Reservoirs Of Water Ice Found On Mars, Says NASA

In a recent study published in the journal Science, researchers from the Arizona detachment of United States Geological Survey reported, with the help of NASA images, that they discovered significant reservoirs of water ice very close to the surface of Mars. Scientists have been convinced that Mars has stores of ice for a while now, but the results of the new study mean that water could potentially be within reach of future exploration missions to the planet.

Climate Change Means 99% Of Australian Sea Turtles Are Being Born Female

A strange phenomenon is taking place amongst sea turtles living in a region of the Great Barrier Reef. According to a new study done on the turtles, almost every turtle born in the northern part of the region is female. The fact that 99% of all the turtles born in this region are female poses a threat to the entire colony, as it may lack the sufficient number of males required to sustain itself in the coming decades. Temperature Determines...
